warren county health officials are investigating a rash of mumps cases. seven students at indianola high school have come down with the mumps in t past month. 5 were vaccinated. the lab confirmed 4 cases right before christmas break. 3 similar illnesses have also surfaced. the school is now asking facty and students to disinfect common areas several times s day. right now, it's not considered an outbreak. "i would say that we are at a series of cases right now, based population " all students are now required mumps and rubella, or mmr, vaccine. the school has notified parents of the developments. the u-s-d-a's crop production report is out. in today's agribusiness report, an analyst
"it's a very unusual event to have the magnitude of rainfall and the intensity of rainfall that we received this past december. november and december this last year were very warm.. and very wet for winter.. good afternoon.. this is the agribusiness report.. i'm david geiger. for farmers.. one of the biggest challenges is planning for the weather.. or rather.. being able to deal with whatever weather comes your way.. which can be difficult when trying to stop nutrients from leaving a field.. the department of agronomy at iowa state university says fall application of nutrients should be done after the ground has dropped below 50 degrees.. at that temperature.. the biological process of converting ammonium nitrogen.. to nitrates.. called nitrification... is
but this year.. after soils got to that temperature.. they warmed again.. if nitrogen is in the soil as ammonium.. then wet conditions won't move much.. if any of i.. but if it gets converted.. water can take it away.. but that doesn't mean applied nitrogen was lost this winter.. "even though they were thawed an not frozen, the soils were cold. denitrification would not be going on because it's a biological process so compared to a summer or springtime event t en soils were warm, we would not have expected denitrification losses, but we could have had leeching losing nitrogen by water going down through the soil.. is different from runoff.. when water runs on top of the soil.. does not lose much nitrogen.. however.. it does create erosion problems.. and causes phosphorous concerns.. while there isn't much landowners can do to change the weather.. the department of agronomyoes have guidelines for safer times to apply nutrients..
sawyer says only earlier fall applications could have lost out on nutrients.. but even then.. producers shouldn't assume their fertilizer is gone.. "producers should wait and see how thihis go in the spring use some testing in the spring. perhaps decide on how those applications are performing and not just make a quick decision to apply more nitrogen. i think we'd rather see them waiting and see how the springtime goes." fall application is an important tool to farmers.. who have limited time and resources while planting in the spring.. or have too steep of hills to apply fertilizer during the growing season. ---- the long awaited crop production report from the u-s-d-a is out today.. u-s corn and bean production are both estimated to go down.. analyst alan brugler gave me the rundown on what's going on in the grains.. particularly how the wheat market got a bump. "we're getting a nice little bulsh pop h he the usda gave us a little bit to work with. and we were fairly oversold technically in some of these
interday basis or on a daily chart basis." "so a little short covering going on. particularly in the wheat you're seeing that. the report was bearish other than the winter wheat seedings number down 7 percent from last year and 14 peent from two years ago. so that's a dramatic drop in u.s. wheat production potential for 2016 and i think that's what the market's reacting to." "that transfers into corn to a degree. corn numbers were fairly friendly themselves. the usda did give us a higher ending stocks figure 1.8 billion bushels." " but we saw a little smaller dec 1 inventory than expected and they did cut e final average yield in u.s. production." ---- and that wraps up our show for the day.. thanks for joining us.. i'll see you again next time. ---- we'll post a video every day in the agribusiness section of kcrg.com. you'll find it under the news tab. i'm david geiger with the agribusiness report. trt 3.44 oc std. chip cards are meant to protect you.
chips for your security. but scammers see the switch as an opportunity. barbara green with the better business bureau is here today. the kicker of this, is that the chips are supposed to protect you from fraud... how does it work? what can you do? many banks are issuing new debit and credit cards with an embedded chip for additional security. the new chips are meant to reduce fraud, but the hype around the new cards is having an unintended side effect - fodder for scams. you receive an email saying that your new credit or debit card with the chip is on the way. but first, you need to update your account. the message seems to be from your bank or credit card issuer. it may have the company'y'logo and even the reply email address. all you need to do, claims the message, is reply and confirm you personal and banking information. or, in another version, the message instructs you to click on the link to complete the process. don't do it! if you share personal information, the scammer can use it to commit

president on national security. political polls help candidates gauge their support, and they give the public an educated guess of which way an election may go. but sometimes, polls contradict each other. for example, the wall street journal, n-b-c and marist released polls over the weekend that put hillary clinton and bernie sanders in a statistical tie in iowa. then yesterday, quinnipiac university released a poll of likely iowa democratic caucus goers. it found sanders ahead of clinton. the director of the loras poll says there are a lot of factors that make results vary from poll to poll. it's the way pollsters define certain words, who they talk to, and how they reach those people. students
college are studying the caucuses and working on the loras poll. the students crafted the questions for the next loras poll. pollsters will begin making calls to iowa voters starting today. "for democracy to work and function. i don't think voters should sit back and say, the polls have told me who is going to win but rather to say here is whwh my fellow citizens are thinking at this time.
